After months and months and months of delays
, Kaos, the take-out pizza shack from Patrick Mangold-White and Jon Edwards, will finally fire up its oven tomorrow at exactly 11:30 a.m. Mangold-White and Edwards, who also own Gaia Bistro
, 1551 South Pearl Street, had hoped to open Kaos in the former home of Nosh at 1439 South Pearl back in May, but issues with their wood-burning oven -- specifically the size of it -- created a shitstorm of problems with the city of Denver
. "That's all done now, we're ready to go and even though I'm terrified, it's a good terrified," said Mangold-White when I stopped by earlier today to check on the progress, and, as it turned out, sample a killer margarita pizza.
"I forgot how much fun it was to make pizzas," Mangold-White said, laughing. "This is a blast." He's still tinkering with the menu, but it'll include salads, pastas, panini and of course, pizzas, including a seasonal special, which is currently a pie with pumpkin butter, figs, fresh sage, toasted pumpkin seeds and walnuts. "We'll also have a board with the whims of the chef, you know different pizzas and sandwiches each day," Mangold-White explained.
Delivery starts tomorrow, too, and because Mangold-White and Edwards appreciate that the neighborhood likes its libations, they're giving customers the option of ordering their pizza with wine. That's right: They've got two whites and two reds, all of which come from Divino Wine and Spirits on South Broadway. "We'll have a beer and wine license in February, but until then, we're offering four wines for around $12 a bottle, which is way cheaper than restaurant pricing," says Mangold-White.
We'll open our pie hole for that.
Kaos will be open daily from 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. Call 303-733-5267 to get a pie (and wine) delivered to your door.
